WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS EVENT?

To share good practice and lessons learnt across research and practice in using green infrastructure to deliver better outcomes for nature;

To identify the opportunities and barriers for green infrastructure delivery in the planning system

To reflect critically on the contribution of a NERC knowledge exchange fellow

WHY SHOULD YOU COME?

  • To learn more about existing research and practice on green infrastructure
  • To actively engage in critical discussion groups to better translate research into practice.
  • To share your own experiences in mainstreaming nature in policy and decision making
  • To help shape future research agendas on mainstreaming

WHO SHOULD COME?

This event is targeted at all those with an interest in the built and natural environment. It is aimed at both research and practice communities.

I HOPE THE EVENT IS NOT DEATH BY POWERPOINT!

No; not at all. Indeed the structure of the day will evolve in response to participant priorities.

All day virtual conferences are very demanding. This event includes a variety of activities including short 15 minute lecturettes on specific issues with follow up panel discussion shaped by the audience.

The event is highly structured in the morning but the afternoon workshops are designed shaped by the participants themselves from the morning activities and outcomes. You actively can help shape the focus of these sessions using the conference white board MURAL.
